I bought this device a week ago and i am very satisfied with the performance
Battery is more than enough
No heating problems
Blue topaz looks awesome
It's an open secret, that come what may Sammy most expensive So edge ad St have badly being price cuts , even emerald and blue are not entirely available. Within 1 Qtr from launch. Bought slightly used edge for half 450$. Here Apple has to be commended 1st one model throughout the year now 2 models will sell n millions with no price cuts.
Most headache with Android is daily updating of every apps you have has become a nuisance, in relation to its or windows. Once a blue moon, not every other day 10 to 20 apps are updating see bugs only. Fed up, Sammy has copied Sony, steel with glass but not all steel, way back Nokia had done it perfectly.
Hi im from the Philippines and I got my unit in Globe. I Just wonder how can I turn on the the touch light (recent and back button)? I watched some tips in youtube and I already downloaded the recommended app which is the Galaxy Button Light but still doesnt work. Help me.

Maybe can have them all: fast, good looking and light☺
But I recommend the phone anyway.
PS: I am waiting for a smart move from other, mainly Htc
Material design theme by Cambunch from theme store on the S6 does wonders! The interface became more mature looking with that theme!! And Exynos is astonishingly powerful, but battery is meh!

It is a very good stone but the screen get scratched easy. I ve dropped my phone in the and landed face down and probably in contact with a small some it got a small scratch/dent in the screen. It can observed when passing finger or nail onto it. And it is visible when looking.
I thought gorrila glass 4 should be harder to scratch in such a minor accident.
I am happy with overall performance of the phone. And looks. Durability is to be seen.
Just found an opinion poll online about "the best combination in android"

Apple excels is making nice and competitive products with least hardware specs possible. That is far better job compared to any smart phone manufacturer in the world. Samsung had tried some bada platform or sth which dint work. it's really hard to say which one is on top... Battery consumption btw differs from device to device, display and processor eat major part of it almost all the time the phone is in use, maybe not RAM i guess.___peace as always :)
nickysor, 10 Jul 2015I can't be useless. Come on. It is a very fluid, fast, well built phone. And very good camera,... moreHmm ok my main issue at this time with samsung is that while multi tasking and with the point of speed... it fails... i have s4 and its getting worse day by day ... my friend using z3 said that it is the best fone ryte now cz of its battery timing and disply and most imp speed... i always used samsung flagships but now this time i was thinking about to switch frm samsung to sum other company but only andriod... no ios... sum friends suggest me oppo and sum suggested huawai but i want to buy s6 but conscious about things mentioned above :/
This is The first samsung's smart phone that worth to buy ! I love it
Anonymous, 11 Jul 2015Best phone out rite now, defenetly worth buying..far more better then iPhone...Totally agreed
AnonD-407752, 10 Jul 2015Any comparison between iPhone and other android devices will be utter foolishness and meaningl... moreApple do that because smaller ram consume less battery. 1gb ram give their devices longer battery life. Most of their battery are less than 2000mah. This is also due to Apple supplies of mobile RAM at sufficient quantities and densities is quite constrained, especially at the quantities that Apple needs. Samsung put bigger ram simply because they could and they manufacture their own mobile DRAM. Samsung can control their DRAM chips supply unlike Apple. However, Samsung don't control their OS like Apple. If Samsung able to control Android OS like Google they too could optimized the performances of their Samsung Galaxy devices. That is why the only direct rival to Apple devices is the Google Nexus devices made by Google.
Samsung galaxy s6 and iphone 6, both are fastest phones atm on earth.
I find Samsung has the upper hand on Apple because, like everyone says apple can produce outstanding benchmark with just 1GB ram and Dual core processor (mainly they are charging for their software expertise), which is good for a company. However (this is for samsung haters specially) (Iam not a fan of Samsung or Apple)
Samsung may not be efficient to sync their software with their hardware but at least when they are charging more they are providing you that big quad core/octa core processor and high end GPU and 3GB+ rams (which we may not require but at least have that peace of mind that we have good hardware) as far as software is concerned, Touchwiz (samsung software) could be replaced with CyanogenMod (free OS for android devices - chech youtube on how to do it) which would run like Usain bolt with high end hardware.
Best phone out rite now, defenetly worth buying..far more better then iPhone...
I have to say I am liking this phone very much. I am coming from an LG G3.
The size and feel is more comfortable. The first real difference was in my car, i ansewerd the phone on speaker and the callers voice was extremely crisp, clear, so crisp and clear that it kind of startled me. On the LG I had to close the windows and turn the heater/Aircon off to hear the caller clearly.
The next thing that took me by surprise was the double power saver. As usual it was near the end of the day and I forgot to charge the night before. I was under 10% battery. I swithed to powersaver regular and it read 1.5 hours left, I still needed more so I switched to double saver and managed to get 4 hours out of it. Impressive. Even Scotty would have been in awe. I need more power scotty!!!
On double save the screen goes to black and white and you get min. icons.
I give it a 10/10
